Science Made Public: Battling the Superbugs: New Drugs from the Sea

The emergence of antibiotic resistance among human pathogenic bacteria is leading to the widespread failure of our antibiotic stocks. With the antibiotic pipeline running empty, a new strategy needs to be implemented to overcome antimicrobial resistance and rejuvenate the existing arsenal of antibiotics. Learn how WHOI researchers are using a novel approach to defeat these “superbugs” by mining marine microbes for new drugs that regain antibiotic potency.
